It brings into deeper scrutiny the nature of the PCB’s biosecurity protocols

A non-playing member from one of the PSL franchises who tested positive for Covid-19 was allowed to exit the bubble and fly back to Lahore, instead of quarantining until he returned two negative tests, as per official regulations.

The official returned a positive test near the start of this season and he departed Karachi for Lahore on the second day after that test result.

The PSL was postponed indefinitely last week, after a spate of positive tests made continuing the tournament untenable, but since then a number of details have begun to emerge that have poked holes into the PCB’s claims that the protocols and its bubble were secure.
